BJP will today observe black day across the country to mark the anniversary of the Emergency imposed in 1975 by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
Senior party leaders and Union ministers will hold press conferences and address seminars and hall meeting programmes on Emergency.
BJP spokesperson Anil Baluni said press conferences and seminars will be organised at nearly 22 places across the country to make the new generation aware about how the Congress had murdered democracy by imposing Emergency.
Mr Baluni said such mass awareness is needed so that no one could dare to impose Emergency in the future. He said the idea is to highlight how the Emergency was the darkest period of independent India.
